The Correlation Study between Business Models and Corporate Performance from the Perspective of Value Network: A Case Study of Listed Manufacturing Companies in Taizhou



Strengthening cluster development is conducive to the collective improvement of urban manufacturing, but businesses will become more dependent on the value network. In order to explore the differences in performance between different business models under the value network and to investigate the business models suitable for specific enterprises, this article selects relevant data from the GEM-listed manufacturing companies. It includes an index system for classifying business models, the classification, and characteristics of business models. The relationship between the types of business models and performance is interpreted from the perspective of specific indicators of performance measurement, factor analysis, and variable explanation. Finally, the data suggests that processing-oriented enterprises with concentrated customers and low brand awareness are conducive to rapid development. However, focusing on research and development, innovative investment, and increasing the resilience of the industrial chain are beneficial for later growth and transformation.
